Kids at home and no nanny means my house is a mess again. Now combine that with double work and double workouts…..and there hasn’t been second to blog I’v ...

Day 10 – Almost half way!

I’m nearly half way through my 21 days of meditation challenge!! Not just daily meditation, pranayama, but also adding rituals like oil pulling, 4:30 am wake up and back to triathlon training. (all that and a full work day) And super clean eating – whole foods plant based, no sugar, no gluten – and 100% delicious of course! So muc ...

Day 9 – It’s what’s On The Inside That Counts

Ah, day 9 was indulgent. Morning meditation, pranayama, gratitude. Sunday dosas, green smoothies, and lots of veggies. Rest day – so no workout. Felt content reflecting on the week that passed. Its been about 5-6 weeks of going sugar & gluten free, and on a completely whole foods plant based diet. And I’ve been feeling light & e ...

Day 8 – Rebuilding my foundation – one brick at a time

I am super thrilled to share that I did my first brick workout in ages. A year and half precisely – since my half ironman in 2015. A brick workout – is back to back workouts of any 2 of the 3 triathlon sports. Naturally, they are twice the challenge too. Day 8 started at 4:30 am – Oil pulling, pranayama, meditation. Breathe, breat ...

Day 7 & my Magic Potion for a good night’s sleep

Day 7 – yes! I’ve made it through a full week of meditation. I enjoyed my usual practice, 4:30 am doesn’t seem abnormal anymore. I’ve been trying to head to bed at 9:30 pm, to make this sustainable, and not just a 21 day fling! BTW, I’m not a masochist, waking up at 4:30 am isn’t meant to be a punishment. I truly ...

Day 6 – Vegan vs. Plant Based

Hola people Don’t have much time to write today, but I thought I’d share a short note on the difference between being Vegan and Plant Based.   I’ve been vegetarian for 7 years – through high school and college (in the US). While one can be vegetarian and healthy, not all vegetarians are! I was doing it all wrong – ...

Day 5 – Ommm – My Go To Morning Rituals

Why are morning rituals so important? They set the tone for the day ahead. Every morning is a fresh start, no matter what has happened the day the before, the Sun will rise again, and its an opportunity to have a great day! Its a choice that we make, life is not by chance.   A few years ago, my life may have been simpler. But, as time has pass ...

The More the Merrier – Double workouts, Meditation, and one Great Day – Day 4

Ok, its confirmed, I love working out. And what works well for me is working towards a specific goal (or event) and structured training. Without which I will not wake up and run 10 km or jump into a pool. But just signing up for an event and working with a coach keeps me on track. I’ve decided to do the Olympic distance triathlon in Thonnur ( ...

Day 3 – Short – not sweet

Don’t know why I rushed through my morning meditation. Woke up with my 4:30 am alarm. Something must have been on my mind, but it lasted maybe 15 minutes. I know folks like Tony Robbins advocate a 10 minute meditation, but I need a minimum of 30 minutes to go through my full routine. And fill my lungs with oxygen, and my mind with positivity, ...

Day 2 – My plate is full!

What an eventful Sunday! I gave myself an extra half hour and my day started at 5 am. Enjoyed my pranayama and meditation. Pranayama because it gives me the boost of oxygen I need first thing in the morning, I’ve been noticing lately that my breath is very short. And the more I rush through my day, or are a little (or a lot) stressed, I tight ...
